It is 288 cm^2.

The volume of a triangular pyramid can be found using the formula Volume=Base Area x height /3. Surface Area can be expressed as Surface Area =Base Area+0.5 x perimeter x side length.

Suppose that the area of the rectangular base is: lw then if the height is: h the surface area is: lw + lh + wh I believe that formula is for the surface area of a rectangular prism...

The surface area of a pyramid is the area of all the faces of the pyramid, for a pyramid with apex in the centre and a regular polygon as its base, (the bottom of a pyramid is the base, it is regular if all sides are the same length) the surface area is: B + 1/2(P * H) where B is the area of the base, P is the perimeter (area around) the base and H is the height of the pyramid.

It is 288 cm^2.

The formula to find the area of an octagonal pyramid is area of base plus area of sides.

The answer depends on the what characteristic of the pyramid you want the formula for: its surface area, its volume or something else.

It has to do with the surface area formula: To find the total surface area of a pyramid, use this equation: Surface Area = B + 1/2 * P * s B = base area P = perimeter of the base s = slant height To find the volume of a Pyramid, substitute into this equation: V=1/3Bh B=base area h=height of pyramid

Surface Area = 1/2 x {times} the perimiter x {times}it by the the side length

There can be no such formula in general. A formula will exist if the area is a regular polygon (or a circle).

To calculate the surface area of a truncated pyramid, you first take the surface area of each side. That would be the base time the straight height. If it is a 4 side pyramid with equivelant sides, multiply that answer by 4.

There is no "regular pyramid". There are triangle pyramids, square pyramids, pentagon pyramids, etc. With the information given in your question, there is no way to answer.
